Elementary School - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week #44

Week #44 – Elementary School . Describe your grammar/elementary school (or schools). Were they big or small? Are any of these schools still in existence today? If so, how have they changed since you went there?

I attended grades one and two at Riverview Elementary School. It was located next to Titusville High School and across from the Indian River. In addition to the view of the river, we had great views of the Apollo launches. Riverview was fairly large with several classes each of grades one to six and like most of the older schools, it wasn't air conditioned. The building is still there today, but has been taken over as part of the high school. The school was reopened with the same name in a different location.

For grades three and four, I went to South Lake Elementary. This was a newer, air-conditioned building, but despite the name, there was no water view. It was about the same size as Riverview and still exists today. I haven't been back for many years, so can't say how it has changed. For grades five and six, I went back to Riverview. We didn't move during these years, but they kept changing the school district lines.

This is a weekly challenge from GeneaBloggers called 52 weeks of personal genealogy history.
